PDF417 Support in IDAutomation GS1 Databar Java Package

Hello. We have a need to generate GS1 and PDF417 barcodes. The IDAutomation GS1 Databar Java Package supports both, so we are excited to move forward with it. We have had no problem creating GS1 barcodes precisely as we want them, but it seems as though the options for PDF417 are very limited. For instance, we cannot set the number of data rows. We can create the right type of PDF417 using the IDAutomation online tool, but require assistance with the Java package.

Thanks.

EDIT: I should have included more details. You can see the barcode that I created using the IDAutomation online tool here: http://www.shoptocook.com/shoptocook/Web/stc/IDAutomationStreamingPDF417.gif

This is the closest I can get using the Java tool: http://www.shoptocook.com/shoptocook/Web/stc/PDF417_1.jpg

Here is a screenshot of the settings from the online tool: http://www.shoptocook.com/shoptocook/Web/stc/OnlineTool.png

And here is the code snippet I used:


DataBar bc=new DataBar();
bc.code = "qlpuzlepaDHAORKAMR5";
bc.barType=DataBar.PDF417;
bc.setPDFMode(1);
// bc.setPDFRows(11);
bc.setPDFColumns(3);
bc.setLeftMarginCM(0);
bc.setTopMarginCM(0);

com.idautomation.databar.encoder.barCodeEncoder bce2 = new com.idautomation.databar.encoder.barCodeEncoder(bc, "JPEG", "/temp/PDF417_1.jpg");
